'At The Dinner Party' is the chance for you, your family and your friends to experience professional restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home.
As a highly skilled and experienced private chef, I will work with you to produce a menu personal to your very own needs, to create the perfect bespoke event catering.
I will then come to your venue, your house or a self-catering cottage you‘re renting or a marquee in your garden. On the day of the outside catering event I will arrive at the venue at a prearranged time and will prepare, cook and serve you a most memorable meal.
All you and your guests need to do is sit back and relax, I will take care of everything, even the dishes.
There really are no limitations, whether you're after a romantic dinner, a fine dining party experience for 20, a shoot party provided by outside catering, by your own private chef, a classy touch to your best friends hen party, some private cookery lessons or even your wedding catering.
At the dinner party event catering can do it all.
Having been a chef for almost 20 years my career has taken me on a journey through this amazing industry, from 5 star resort hotels, private villas in the French alps, beach side restaurants in Greece, numerous Michelin star restaurants including 2 Michelin star restaurant Le Gavroche. Where working with Michel Roux Jnr transformed me from a good chef to a great chef.
In 2009 I reached the final of BBC's MasterChef the professionals, where I finished runner-up.
In 2011 I reached the final of the Compass/Restaurant Associates chef of the year once again finishing as runner up. More recently in 2017 having fought off competition from some of the countries best chefs I made it to the semi-finals of the National Chef of the Year.
Then in both 2018 & 2019 I reached the final of the Kikkoman Masters competition again battling it out with some of the countries best chefs.
When it comes to produce I refuse to compromise on quality. That's why I work very closely with my local suppliers to source ingredients from local producers and farmers, with the aim not only to use the freshest produce, but to also have a positive effect on the local community.
Some of my food hero's are Dales of Malton - Fruit & Veg, Food to Remember - Butchers, R&J Yorkshire's finest, Hodgsons fish, I also use the weekly farmers market.
Whether you really just want to be able to cook your own dinner party with confidence, or you want to add more complex skills to your repertoire. As a highly experienced professional chef I have an abundance of knowledge to share with you.
